‘Girls of all kinds can be beautiful – from the thin, plus-sized, short, very tall, ebony to porcelain-skinned; the quirky, clumsy, shy, outgoing and all in between. It’s not easy though because many people still put beauty into a confining, narrow box…Think outside of the box…Pledge that you will look in the mirror and find the unique beauty in you.’ – Tyra Banks

I’ll be honest. It’s not always easy to look in the mirror and say, “Damn, you’re sexy!” anymore. It’s even harder when I look back at photos of myself from years ago. Of course, it isn’t fair to expect myself to look 20 when I’m 40+. And even on days when I’m hating what I’ve got, I try to remind myself…this is the body I have, it works hard for me every day, it bore a beautiful child, and my husband loves it…wants it. This body has been good to me. I should probably be a bit kinder and more accepting of it.

I stepped on the scale today. 200 pounds. Still.

I’m not gonna lie…it makes me ill to know I’ve gained that much weight in the past 10 years. 40 pounds. 40. 4-0. But, I’m not going to hate my body for it. I may be 200 pounds, but I can still pull off sexy. Am I going to accept 200 pounds? No. But, I’m going to love each and every one of them while I am trying to lose them. This is who I am.

  1. I talk about how I love the rawness and honesty that accompanies the sexiness of Sinful Sunday in my contribution to it this week, and this post highlights what I mean beautifully. I think you look super sexy. I love the sheerness of the fabric complimenting your curves. Loving ourselves as our bodies change isn’t always easy, but it is so good for us when we get to that place x

  2. This is who you are and you are a sexy woman! I know how difficult it is to embrace the extra pounds. I am definitely struggling with it too…
    This is a beautiful image.

  3. To be honest I have the whole scales/numbers things mainly depressing. I try to avoid them now and just concentrate on how I feel and look….. and I think you look stunning and love that snazzy little number you are rocking1

  4. You look beautiful. And I agree with Molly re scales and numbers – it’s so much more about how you feel in yourself. If you want to lose weight do so, but you look stunning as you are too. Xx
